Thank you, Miss Porter’s School Ancients!
Because of YOU, the 3rd Annual Worldwide Sit-Down Dinner was a wonderful success. Over 600 Ancients gathered across 5 countries and 27 states to commemorate what it means to be an Ancient and to underscore the significance of the Miss Porter’s School all-female network.
We look forward to the 4th Annual Worldwide Sit-Down Dinner!

October 19, 2019 marked the inaugural MPS Day of Service. Ancients across the country gathered to support the cities in which they live. From installing much needed fire alarms in homes in Los Angeles, to serving popcorn at a festival to further local economic development, to gathering much needed supplies for a women’s shelter, Ancients served their communities, setting the groundwork to shape the world in which they live!
Thank you to Maggie Johndrow ’06 and Caroline Udelhofen ’07 for their work in organizing this amazing simultaneous service project effort.
We are excited to announce the 2nd Annual Day of Service, #MPSDayofService, which runs through September 26, 2020. This year’s service events will be held in a “virtual” format, allowing Ancients to participate in projects that speak to their desire to enact change and that are not limited by their geographic location.
